Your Business is your Spirit Guide
The early morning frost crunched underfoot as I climbed up the hill. I puffed past the sleeping rhododendrons until I reached the overlook. Every morning I came up here—jacket slung over my nightgown— to speak my gratitudes aloud before I started my day. This particular morning my stomach was churning. Today, I was officially headed to the government building in town to apply for my business permit. Today, One Willow Apothecaries was going to become a reality. My whole being buzzed with excitement and nervousness. I didn’t know it at the time, but I wasn’t just giving gratitude for the start of a new venture. It was the start of a whole new relationship.
Our businesses are our spirit guides. They aren’t just something we create, but something that creates, and shapes, us. On that bright cold morning over a decade ago I had no idea that when I turned in my permit at the pine-scented office in town, I was signing a contract to work with one of the most profound spiritual teachers— my business.
The journey was choppy at first. In those early days I used the laundry room as my office, shipping orders until after midnight before trailing packing tissue on my socks into bed. It wasn’t until I started really listening to the deep lessons my business was trying to teach me— including what my true gifts were and who I was here to become— that the struggle turned into soulful clarity. In the process, I actually began to make a living doing the things I loved and eventually brought in a whole team of people who felt like they that had the job of their dreams as well.
It took me a long time to figure out how to create a truly spirit-led business. One that radiates wellbeing on every level— financially, creatively and spiritually. But it doesn’t have to take you that long.
If you have a business, or know that 2022 is the year that you’re ready to start one, check out my new video: Your Business is Your Spirit Guide. In the video I share the three things that my business has taught me over the years that ended up being the missing pieces in fulfilling my life’s blueprint.
Everyone is here for a reason. In your clearest moments, you can feel it as viscerally as the warmth of the winter sun on your skin. If your heart keeps telling you it’s time to start your business— trust it. This voice is coming from a guide who is ready to help you step into the healing you’re meant to bring to the world.

This really resonates. While listening I could almost feel my business spirit say “Ahha! Now she’s going to get it!” I’m just starting with my energy guidance business and I’m struggling with finding the right marketing tools to be able to get found. Most social media makes want to run screaming because of all the noise, so I’ll definitely will need to listen to see where my business itself would like to go. Thank you so much for the inspiring post!

A beautiful post, thank you so much for this message.
While listening to you it was like I could sense my business saying “Aha! Now she’s going to get it.” 🙂 I’m only just starting up and as an empath it’s indeed so easy to do what you feel others might want or what they literally advice you to do (usually something instead of my woo).
And then the social media/marketing… I’ll have to find a way to do it authentically without feeling the need to run screaming from all the noise and distraction online.
Thank you again for the tips and inspiration!
I feel so much of what you’ve said. I try to allow my business to lead me instead of the other way around. The reasons are because of all that you said in this video, though I couldn’t put it into words. Of course that means I do a lot of things and wear a lot of hats. I feel the pull to narrow my scope but haven’t ever been able to do so because I love all the things I do! Indeed I’d like to FEEL more successful, and the blocks to that I’m sure are all in me. But yes, my business is its own entity and I’m just the owner fumbling around trying to figure out where it wants me to go next.
Hey Stephanie, how cool that this video helped reflect what you’ve been doing intuitively with your business?!
I hear you about loving to do so much that it’s hard to narrow it down to a specific focus with specific goalposts. One of the pieces Asia specifically touches on in the course is what are our own perceptions of success as highly sensitive and/or spiritually guided business owners?
Thank you being on this journey and sharing some of it with us! In blessing of the next chapters,
